"Beverly Hills, 90210" was a
prime timetelevision drama series that aired from October 4, 1990 to May 17, 2000 on FOX in the United States, and subsequently on various networks around the world. It is the first series in the "Beverly Hills, 90210" franchise. The show followed the lives of a group of teenagers living in the upscale, star-studded community of Beverly Hills, Californiaand attending the fictitious West Beverly Hills High School and, subsequently, the fictitious California University. The show was created by Darren Starand produced by Aaron Spellingand Spelling Television. The "90210" in the title refers to one of the city's postal ZIP codes.
The original premise of the show was based on the adjustment and culture shock that twins Brandon (played by
Jason Priestley) and Brenda Walsh (played by Shannen Doherty) experienced when they and their parents, Jim and Cindy moved from Minnesotato Beverly Hills. In addition to chronicling the friendships and romantic relationships of a group of close-knit teenagers, the show also addressed topical issues including date rape, alcoholism, domestic violence, gay rights, drug abuse, teenage suicide, AIDS, and teenage pregnancy.
The series gained popularity during the summer of 1991, when FOX aired a special "summer season" of the show while most other series were in
reruns. The series became one of FOX's top shows when it began its next season that fall. Viewership increased dramatically and the cast members, particularly Jason Priestleyand Luke Perry, became teen idols, while the series would make actresses Shannen Doherty, Jennie Garthand Tori Spellinghousehold names.
